Ṭaṅkitamañca

A place near Gayā. It was the residence of the yakkha Suciloma and the Buddha once stayed there (SN. p.47 f; S.i.206).

The Suttanipāta Commentary (SNA.i.301) explains that Ṭaṅkitamañca was at Gayātittha, and that it was a stone-bed (pāsāṇamañca) formed by a stone set on the top of four other stones.

The Saṃyuttanikāya Commentary (SA.i.232 f) says it was either a house (geha) so-formed, or a long bed made with supports inserted under the legs of the bedstead and placed in the temples of the gods.
